*Note: I bought the pack with "Road to Rome", "Secret Weapons of WWII", and "Battlefield: Vietnam."
When I first bought this game, I was hesitant, but I figured that I would buy it; I got it for $20, so I figured I wouldn't be out too much if it was a flop. It took a while for me to install it, but when I did, I'm glad I did!
Okay, let me first off say that this game isn't exactly historically correct; but who cares? It's a fun game! If you're used to games where you only run or walk, and don't like it, then this game is for you! You can drive a tank, be a gunner, fly a plane, swim (Which is a surprise, considering that in every other game you either just walk through it or die.), be a main battery on a battleship, or just run.
Also, another thing that made this game stand out for me is the fact that you can flank the enemy; you don't just go through one path and hope not to die. Another thing that's nice is the fact that you can re-spawn. You don't have to start over if you die.
All in all, I think the best way that I can describe BF:1942 is this: It's like a cross between Medel of Honor/Call of Duty meets Grand Theft Auto. Yes, you can take certain objectives, but you don't have to. You can get in any vehicle you like, as long as it's not inhabited. The only thing I have against the game is the fact that it's not entirely historically accurate.
It's a good game, and I'd reccomend it.Read full review
